Roll / Mimmo God) Christie is very angry with mom & daddy They treat her like a child while she feels a lady Jonna's rock'n' roll opened up her mind Yeah, she wanted more, something hard to find A small town girl, her waking dreams A bigger place to spread her wings Now Christie's gone away to live in London, live in London Jonna wants two beers to drown it all All these years she talked about goin' to live in London, live in London Now I can finally sleep my headache off Just the day before i met her friend, Kareena She was fancy dressed and sippin'whiskey She kissed me and turned me on, yeah, she went out of bounds She said "I always do it when my boy's not around" A small town girl, her waking dreams A bigger place to spread her wings Kareena's gone away to live in London, live in London Jonna wants two beers to drown it all All these years she talked about goin' to live in London, live in London Now I can finally sleep my headache off Christie & Kareena are gone, they live in London, live in London Jonna wants two beers to drown it all All these years they dreamed about goin' to live in London, live in London Now I can finally sleep

Piracy 04:39
PIRACY (written by Jonna) Four men in grey uniform entered my world at dawn just to look through my secrets but I laugh out loud at these powerful pigs I smoked 90 cigarettes in just six hours they tried to teach their law to me and get into my brain but I laugh out loud at these powerful pigs my mind's already into the future of wild piracy free piracy pirate for a living let's hack the world! like marionettes they had to find their goddamn truth to give some sense to their boring lives an illusion of honesty but I laugh out loud at these powerful pigs my mind's already into the future of wild piracy free piracy pirate for a living let's hack the world! I'm so tired, all alone "objection overruled!" scared of the final judgment I can't speak but... but... but I laugh out loud at these powerful pigs my mind's already into the future of wild piracy free piracy pirate for a living let's hack the world!

IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE (Written by Jonna and Mimmo God) Psychedelic room at the hard rock hotel It's scene of the crime, the beginnin' of the end From the dancefloor to the bar, then she took me upstairs And still she'd hold me there, hand-cuffed and chained She just touched my body and then crushed my soul Now I see her, she's still acting like before, 'cos she's Always cheating, heart lies bleeding She led me to the very end Always cheating, heart lies bleeding Now you know she caught me by surprise In the blink of an eye Just a touching glance in the heat of a summer night Just another chance, I know it won't come twice She said “get ready for a night that's never ever gonna end!” A dream turns into nightmare, no reason to stay She just touched my body and then crushed my soul Now I'm free but she's just acting like before, 'cos she's Always cheating, heart lies bleeding She led me to the very end Always cheating, heart lies bleeding Now you know, she caught me Always cheating, heart lies bleeding She put my back against the wall Always cheating, heart lies bleeding Now you know, she caught me by surprise In the blink of an eye And now I wonder who's the next to be her prey 'cos she's Always cheating, heart lies bleeding She led me to the very end Always cheating, heart lies bleeding Now you know, she caught me Always cheating, heart lies bleeding She put my back against the wall Always cheating, heart lies bleeding Now you know, she caught me (Always cheating) She crushed my soul (Heart lies bleeding) You known she's (Always cheating) Always cheating (Heart lies bleeding) My back's against the wall You know she caught me by surprise In the blink of an eye
